Wasting our Lives
Actually, I do find Christians these days who seem to have largely wasted their lives. They were converted to Christ but they have never sought to go on to an increasing knowledge of God. There is untold loss and failure because they have accepted the whole level of things around them as being normal and desirable.
The Counselor, 130.
Wisdom of God
“Wisdom, among other things, is the the ability to devise perfect ends and to achieve those ends by the most perfect means….All God’s acts are done in perfect wisdom, first for His own glory, and then for the highest good of the greatest number for the longest time. And all His acts are as pure as they are wise, and as good as they are wise and pure. Not only could His acts not be better done: a better way to do them could not be imagined.”
The Knowledge of the Holy, 60-61
Work of the Lord
“We have become so engrossed in the work of the Lord that we have forgotten the Lord of the work.”
The Banner, Dec. 4, 70, p. 2
